INX Color Catalog


sample color catalog system

The INX 2-Piece Metal Color Catalog is the industry's first true color standard printed directly on metal. Brand owners, designers, and metal decorators can select, communicate, and approve color efficiently, reducing lead times—getting labels to market quicker. The proprietary INX numbering system includes over 600 removable metal color swatches and access to the same INX colors via the INX Digital Color Library available in Adobe® design programs.


Digital Color Library

Digital Color Library

The INX Digital Color Library gives designers and prepress teams access to the INX 2-Piece Metal Color Catalog colors for use during the design phase. The INX Digital Color Library is a plugin preset which permits INX colors to be used within Adobe® design programs that use the Adobe Standard Exchange color swatch system (.ase). Once you register your catalog, you will have access to download a copy of the INX Digital Color Library located in the catalog support area.
